Yesterday was National Handwriting Day, so today I am sharing a TBT of some of the many handwriting memorial pieces I made over the last few years.

Thank you to *all* of you who honored me with the opportunity to create these pieces for you – Every one of your stories touched me, and I held your loss close to my heart as I worked on those special pieces. . . . . . . #instajewelry #instasmithy #instasmith #silversmith #Metalsmith #goldsmith #ladysmith #RioJeweler #SNAGmember #handwriting #metalsmithing #handmadejewelry #handmade #handcraftedjewelry #contemporaryenamel #nationalhandwritingday #silverjewelry #customjewelry #handwritingjewelry #jewelryaddict #jewelrycollector #jewelryoftheday #grief #oneofakindjewelry #contemporarycraft #artjewelry #mementomori #artisanjewelry #showmeyourjewelrybooks
